Did you ever read something on the internet and think, “That can’t possibly be true” ? Did you ever read something that left you simply speechless? Well, read this.
I understand that due to government regulartion, we have a limited supply of transplantable organs. As such, those needing the organs have to be prioritized. However, as I read the story, that is not the case here. The hospital and doctors are saying that even if the family comes up with an organ thru the related family members, that the doctors and the hospital would still not do the transplant because the child is developmentally disabled. (Retarded. There is nothing wrong with that word, but we’ve replaced it with the PC developmentally disabled.) This is wrong. The fact that the doctors and the hosptial don’t understand that it is wrong is even more frightening. Imagine what will happen when the entire healthcare system is run by government beauracrats who think like this.
